Hiring and Firing Investment Managers


Ben shares his perspectives on the challenges in manager selection and even some of the existential issues facing the money management industry in the wake of lost market share to passive investing. The concept of ‘professionally-managed’ portfolios has come under attack from both the financial media and passive index advocates as both have argued that ‘active managers’ have not added value net of the fees they charge. In this presentation, Ben acknowledges both the academic arguments against and real-world challenges facing traditional active management but believes that the arguments against active management only help bolster the case for professional manager due diligence.

Lunch Keynote - Understanding and Transcending Regulation Best Interest as a Financial Planning Professional


June 30, 2020 is a key date for financial advisors, marking the compliance date for both the SEC’s new “Best Interest” regulatory package (Reg BI) and CFP Board’s new Code of Ethics and Standards of Conduct. Reg BI raises the bar on compliance obligations for broker-dealers and clarifies responsibilities of Registered Investment Advisers. CFP Board’s revised Code and Standards further elevates high ethical and competency standards for CFP® professionals. This session will explain and contrast key provisions of Reg BI and CFP Board’s Code and Standards, place both in the context of the competitive marketplace for advice, and highlight the extraordinary opportunity for financial planning professionals to powerfully differentiate themselves.

Connecticut Trust Law: A Whole New World


The Connecticut Uniform Trust Code, which will take effect on January 1, 2020, establishes a variety of rules on creating, modifying, terminating and enforcing trusts. A trustee owes certain duties and responsibilities to the beneficiaries of a trust. The Uniform Trust Code establishes default rules that, apart from a few exceptions, can be overridden by the terms of the trust, and addresses the trustee’s duties, powers and liabilities. At this seminar you will learn the important changes and provisions of the Uniform Trust Code, why these provisions were added, what these provisions mean for you when creating a trust and much more. You’ll learn about: • The 14 provisions that cannot be overridden by the terms of the trust • The fiduciary duties and liabilities of a trustee • The provisions in the CT Uniform Trust code that outline directed trusts • Provisions regarding domestic asset protection trusts (APT) • Changes in the amount of time a trust may run

Divorce Disability Death: Bringing Life's 3-D's Into Focus


Death, Divorce, and Disability are but three examples of the kinds of difficult client life transitions financial professionals regularly face. As today’s advisor role changes from investment representative or insurance agent to holistic financial planner, the ability to understand, recognize, and deal with these transitions will be key to continuing to build and maintain a successful financial practice. The presentation discusses the relationship between life transitions grief and why understanding and responding to grief is so important to a financial practice: Life transitions = money in motion = altered financial plans. The presentation shows the potential impact of ignoring, failing to identify, or respond to client transitions. We touch on the three biggest transitions: Death, Divorce, Disability, with examples of how to plan for and discuss each one with clients. The presentation shows the role of various insurance products in planning for life transitions. Lastly, the presentation touches on compassionate communication during difficult times: things to say or not say, next steps and a call to action.
